Annual Report 2012 / 2013

Dear students, partners, supporters

and friends of the SCE,

The SCE looks back on ten successful years of teaching

entrepreneurship and establishing a start-up culture at

Munich University of Applied Sciences. It was an exciting

and eventful anniversary year, as 2012 showed the

way forward into our next decade.

Having been one of three German institutions recognised

as start-up universities in the summer 2011, the

principal focus in 2012 was on pursuing and achieving

our ambitious goals in promoting start-ups. I am

extremely pleased at how many of our objectives we

were able to achieve this year.

In the area of qualification, we are now incorporating

several new and unprecedented teaching techniques

into our educational concept. Thus as of recently, real

projects are being systematically woven into curricula

and completion criteria, which provide networking

opportunities for professors, businesses and students.

Students enrolled at MUAS are thus being forged

into entrepreneurial leaders by increasing the level

of practice-oriented, interdisciplinary teamwork and

solution-focused project work in seminars and internships.

Our new Innovation Camp compact course held

up in the mountains is a great success as well.

The year 2012 was a year of superlatives in terms of

recognition, successes and funding for our start-up

support programme. Three start-up teams received

EXIST start-up grants, and two received research

transfers. Two start-ups received co-financing from

the High-Tech Start-up Fund, while some teams found

private investors. In addition, all of our teams got a new

facility at our own university incubator at Lothstrasse
